- Altura Mayhem jacket? Any good?
Mine is the older Attack Extreme, and it’s been great- very, very tough, totally waterproof, untemperamental, fits well over elbow pads too. Downsides are it’s a proper heavy duty waterproof, so it’s hot hot hot- breathable as they come but you still overheat and die in anything but cold weather, I can’t wear it in summer rain.
Seems like the main zip is seizing up, though, so it might be on its way out but it’s had a good run.Posted 4 years ago
Looking at getting a new waterproof jacket, Budget of £100 and I like the look of this jacket.
Also just noticed Merlin have an offer on for the jacket and some Altura Attack 3/4 shorts which would come in handy over the winter months.
Anyone use/used this jacket, What’s your opinion on it?
Also, Any other jackets I should be looking at in my budget? Cheers guys.Posted 4 years agorOcKeTdOgSubscriber
They are great, a bit loud, very waterproof, can get quite hot, the mesh lining continues down the arms which stops the clammy plastic cagoule feeling you get with some jackets. They do come up quite large, I sold my large and bought a medium & I’m 6ft 2 with 42″ chestPosted 4 years agoBoardinBobSubscriber
Altura Attack very cheap herePosted 4 years agokedmunMember
I love my Mayhem jacket – lots of nice features on it. Like the way the hood is easily removed, big side pit zips to keep the air flow coming in, double zipped back pocket for easy access, nice and warm when all zipped up with a fleecy neck. Top jacket, I wear it wandering into town I love it THAT MUCH – Evans price matched it in-store against online Wiggle price too.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

I was hoping the Mayhem was a lighter material and would be better for the summer
Aye. TBH it’s hard to get a waterproof that works well in summer, breathable doesn’t mean cool. I gave up and bought a really good gillet instead, keep the body dry and let the arms be radiators.Posted 4 years ago
